Guys. I’m pretty excited. For the very first time, people are going to be saying Happy Father’s Day… to me.
It hasn’t been an easy road. It wasn’t something that just happened for us because we wanted so badly to be blessed with a baby. 3 years of unexplained infertility, countless doctor appointments, tests, and procedures, and a whole lot of tears and praying… and God proved himself yet again to be so incredibly faithful.
That’s why Father’s Day is that much more special. Because I don’t take it for granted. Not one little bit. Every moment I get to spend with my sweet Olivia Madison is incredibly precious. Even when she briefly wakes up for no reason at 4am screaming her face off.
A celebration as joyous as this requires a burger of monumental proportions. Sure, this Korean Kimchi Burger, Fat Tyler Burger, or Spicy Roasted Pineapple, Avocado, + Bacon Burger would all do the trick nicely. But you’d have a hard time finding a burger that is more manly, more epic, and more Father’s Day worthy than these Whiskey Glazed Burgers with Spicy Brown Sugar Bacon, Avocado, Crispy, Shallots… and a FRIED EGG.
I’m not really what you would call a “manly man”.
I only recently slightly upgraded from the IKEA toolset I purchased when I got my first apartment. My workbench in the garage is… who are you kidding. I don’t have a workbench in the garage.
I’m not into beer. Or whiskey. Or any other very manly type drink. If it’s fruity, I’m a fan. Sure, my friends rank on me for my choice in beverage (heck yes I’ll have a strawberry margarita). But I don’t care. I drink what’s delicious. The end.
But. BUT. Transforming whiskey from this wretched beverage into an amazing glaze that is equally perfect for burgers, chicken, ham, and more? Uhm… YES.
Have you ever made candied bacon before? This spicy brown sugar bacon… it’s pretty freaking addictive. Like, if bacon wasn’t perfect enough, you go ahead and sprinkle it with brown sugar before cooking it. The bacon caramelizes in the oven, making sweet and salty magic.
Do you see that #eggporn? Do you?!?!
It’s one nature’s most beautiful gifts to us.
But let’s be honest. Who’s ever been a little worried about eating raw egg yolks? Or when you fry an egg but there’s a little bit of the white that looks like it wasn’t completely cooked through and your egg radar alarm goes off?
Yea, me too. That’s why I’m a fan of Davidson’s Safest Choice® Pasteurized Eggs. They are pasteurized using an all-natural patented process (goodbye Salmonella risk), meaning we all can eat eggs 100% worry free. And anytime I can get a little peace of mind is a good thing.
